Welcome home.

 

We are so very excited to welcome you back home! We have a modified class schedule along with limited class sizes (so be sure to sign up at in advance)! Extensive cleaning procedures are being implemented, with air purifiers on during all classes.

Many of you have asked if we will continue the Leap Live VIRTUAL classes for those who prefer to continue practicing from the comfort of your home and the answer is YES! As always we will be doing our best to serve in a way that offers classes for EVERY BODY so whether you wish to practice at the studio or join us VIRTUALLY on Leap Live, we are here for you!  Sign up for either on the Leap Website, both options “IN STUDIO” and “VIRTUAL” will be listed on the class schedule.

Our studio safety standards are designed to help us provide a safe and welcoming environment to all who wish to attend in-studio classes. Please take a moment to review. We thank you for your support and understanding.

Reserve your class in advance:

Class sizes are limited and therefore we cannot accept walk-ins at this time. Visit www.leapyoga.net to register in advance.

Please stay home if you are not feeling well:

If you or an immediate family member is sick, running a fever, showing signs of COVID-19 or other illness please do not practice at the studio. If you have tested positive for COVID-19 or have been in contact with someone who has, we ask that you not come to the studio for 14 days or until you’ve tested negative.

We ask that you wear a face mask to and from your mat as a courtesy to our staff, teachers and your fellow yogis:

Our front desk/check in staff will be wearing face masks.

Clean hands make a big difference:

We will have hand sanitizer stations in many different locations in the studio. Please sanitize hands when you come in and again when you leave your mat.

How about restrooms?

We ask that you use our restrooms on a limited basis and limit bathroom occupancy to a maximum of 2 people at a time.

Showers will be closed temporarily.

Please bring your own mats and props.

There will be no rentals or shared props at this time. We have props and mats for sale in studio.

Observe social distancing guidelines:

Remember the days where we practiced 2 inches from one another? Well those days are over for now. We have red (vinyasa & yin classes) and green (kaiut classes) stickers on the floor that you will place at the top center of your mat. This way you will maintain a minimum of 6 feet distance separation. As you check in please maintain social distancing.

Stay in the flow:

Our enter/exit flow will be as follows: enter front doors into main lobby and exit through side doors in main studio. We will ask that you land on your mat and hang out there until the teacher dismisses the class.  Rather than leaving your shoes at the entrance of the main studio, as we have done in the past, we will ask that you take them off at the main door to the studio and place them in a cubbie in the studio with your other personal belongings.

Time in between classes will be used for cleaning the studio for our next wonderful group of yogis.

 

 

Wishing all of you health, peace with much love and gratitude.

 

 


Enjoy our Leap IN STUDIO and Leap VIRTUAL live classes.

 

 

We  are so happy to return to a degree of normalcy, see familiar faces, catch up and get together within our special community.

Treat Your Mind Like An Infant

 

 

Meditation can be a really tough practice. One of the big challenges is the unrelenting judgment of your critical mind. It can feel disheartening when you lose concentration or get distracted by the discomfort of being still. You might overly criticize yourself to the point where you want to quit.

Here is a helpful tip: try treating your mind like an infant learning to walk. Your mind can be wobbly and fragile just like a baby trying to take their first steps. Patience and loving encouragement are absolutely necessary.

Be kind to yourself, especially when you are learning a new skill. You would not get angry at a baby if they lose their balance when walking. In the same way, it is not helpful to get upset when your mind loses concentration in your meditation.

This compassionate approach to your mind applies to more than just your meditation practice. Observing and treating yourself with great care creates a life with more compassion and limits the propensity to cause harm.

Let go of self-judgement and acknowledge your intrinsic value. Your input affects your output. If you are inputting love and care for yourself, you will have a greater capacity to share this with others.

Practice loving attention in your meditation and then notice how you treat yourself and others throughout the rest of your day. It can change the entire landscape on how you view the world.

Fear and Kindness

 

 

Dear friends,

 

A few weeks ago, my teacher asked me to do something.  If it had been for her, I would have said yes, of course, anything. But no, this was for me.  And I immediately said no.  But then I stewed on her words and much to my chagrin, she has never asked me to do anything that did not cause fear and end in personal growth.  And everytime she has asked, I have immediately said, no thank you and then went through the process.

 

Ok, this is minor.  But what it brought up was how fear and the anxiety around that fear can cause us to retreat, to shy away, and to get that sick feeling at the pit of our stomachs.  And I think in these unknown and untried times, we are all experiencing a fear of sorts on different levels. So we go through the what if’s, and we worry about the unknown outcomes that may or may not happen.  And we all do it, it is natural.

 

Recognizing fear.  Where do we feel it?  How do we internalize it? How do we name it?  Or is it too big and murky to be named?  Fear is real;  don’t dismiss or discount its importance to you. Others can say it is irrational, but that doesn’t make it less important to you.

 

Looking inside.  As we dig a little deeper, you may find this unease living inside perhaps causing disquiet, sleeplessness and even pain.  Consider meeting these feelings with kindness.  And if that doesn’t help, be kinder. Nurture, console, and delve more deeply into those feelings.  There are many ways you can do this:  long walks, meditation or meditative activities, getting out in nature, talking with a friend or, perhaps, a little yin yoga.

 

Why yin?  Yin is deep, dark, centered, rich, earthy and ultimately healing. I have been struck now, more than ever, that this is the practice for these times around us.  When the panic sets in, when the unrest and unease are pervasive, how do we find healing.  How do we nourish and nurture ourselves so that we can bring a bit more peace to others in a world where people are seeking ease.  It is now that we need to slow, we need to feel more fully, we need to spend more time healing from the inside.  So that when we emerge from our practice, we are a bit more settled and comforted;  a bit more nurtured.  Does the pain leave? No, but the suffering is less and is slowly replaced bit by bit with kindness, tenderness and grace.

 

Please join me on the mat as we face our fears hand in hand, with kindness, comfort and open hearts.

 

Love,

 

Molly

Leap, Yoga, Grief and Love

 

At Leap we believe in the power of community and that yoga has the power to heal. Practicing yoga in community can enhance the power of intention exponentially. Our practice gives us the ability to come back to ourselves over and over again. When we become still we can align with the place inside that is intelligent, wise, and centered. We can correctly identify what we are feeling and use our wisdom to determine the next right step. There is great power in this process. There is great power in love.

I recommend this short read from LightOmega. For me it’s spot on. This helped me to identify that the feeling underneath the confusion, anger, sadness and frustration is grief. Understanding this has been helpful to me and maybe this article will feel helpful to you in determining what your next right steps might be.

“Dr. King understood this principle. He understood how grief can be linked with love whereas violent retribution cannot. It can only be linked with further violence. He understood that grief, if it involved only a feeling of helplessness, was not enough. But grief connected with a burning desire to prevent suffering and to create change, grief in the presence of love could change the world.”

LightOmega Article: https://lightomega.org/…/death-george-floyd-and-healing-po…/

We want you to know that we are here for you. We continue to teach yoga as a service because these timeless practices help us to evolve and have blessed humanity for thousands of years.

We invite you to continue practicing with us as often as possible as we continue to offer Leap Live VIRTUAL classes led by your dedicated Leap teachers. Our classes are rooted in tradition and are designed to help you tune into your own intelligence for answers, cultivate inner strength, grace, and compassion.

Om namo Bhagavate. Om namo namah. May the Supreme One that we are all part of ignite this fire of love and commitment within us.

Namaste,

Stacy, Butch, Michēal, Cindi and Marco

leapyoga.net becomes friendlier

 

After much discussion and customer feedback, it was time for a change!  Nothing drastic but much needed.

Websites are always a difficult animal to develop, not technically, but because clients become familiar with the layout and without malice, become resistant to change.

The last 2 months have been hectic to say the least.  VIRTUAL was certainly a learning experience with on demand Leap Live being added and the creation of a Leap Library, utilizing our existing provider platform.  The funny thing is we had been talking, and signed off on the offering of a VIRTUAL experience about 6 months ago, but obviously COVID sealed the deal!  This along with the creation of a completely new website, but current events took over.

Leap Library is still being developed and categorization will follow to replace our current listing ordered alphabetically by Yoga type, then by teacher, followed by date.  Our provider also has developed and rushed their VIRTUAL booking platform in order to keep up, as an interim, while their refined version is still to be launched.  This should be out shortly and can’t come soon enough.  Our thinking of not utilizing multiple, perhaps more advanced, platforms was for web stability and seamless transfer.  This has temporarily not allowed us to post previews and thumbnails in our library, but that will come.

So while Leap – our studio – is currently undergoing major refurbishment and rejuvenation, so is Leap on line.  Major category changes have been made, with VIRTUAL SCHEDULE now containing our full range of offerings in a drop down menu.  Our menu has been simplified to reflect Yoga as currently provided.  This should be much simpler to navigate, while still maintaining an air of familiarity.

When changes are made, websites rebel and drop links, so please be a little forgiving until all is repaired, should we have missed something.  All changes have been made while live, as we did not want to disrupt things more than necessary.

Further changes will be made and eventually a second in STUDIO offering will be added when we are given the thumbs up to open.

The Leap VIRTUAL schedule drop down menu now provides you with a full listing of what we have coming including Workshops and Teacher Trainings. It also shows technical pointers on how to get set up.

We have added new sections if you are NEW TO LEAP and expanded the information under ABOUT US drop down menu, as well as adding a link to help you log in under MY ACCOUNT.  Sliding banners have been renamed and are fewer, hopefully more relevant, adding to the navigation experience.

 

 

 

 

We have also tried to simplify things when the site is viewed on different devices, including cell phones and tablets.  Though the best experience is undoubtedly on your computer, especially during these VIRTUAL times.

We sincerely hope that once you have become accustomed to the changes, you find the revisions a marked improvement to assist you in maximizing you enjoyment of Leap VIRTUAL and the Leap experience.
